#FridayThoughts: Adios #AccountaClub

Standard

Things change and with that change comes change. You can write that down. It’s deep.

And thus, here in February, we bid a fond farewell, or a tepid farewell, to #AccountaClub. Oh, #AccountaClub, we hardly knew ye. Except we did, and frankly, you’re just less fun than #FridayThoughts.

So that is that. We can always still talk about our weeks, but the structured post is going the way of the dodo, poor dodo.

It’s freeing, you know, letting go of systems that don’t work for you. We don’t have to do things just because we’ve always done them, or we’ve done them for a while.

Especially in our own little corners of the universe. Well, not a corner really. More like a teeny tiny tiny tiny speck of the universe.

With that I hope you have a delightful Friday and an even more delightful weekend.

#FridayThoughts: #AccountaClub, January 2020

Standard

So here we are, the first last Friday of the year, and time for #AccountaClub! For the new arrivals, AccountaClub is where we talk about our goals and how they’re going, and in 2020, it’s happening on the last Friday of every month.

Goals for me were medium this month. I did some editing, but not enough; I was largely derailed by this cold that is gaining ferocity daily. It’s a tricky one.

I did start doing some freelancing for Rantt Media, it seems that the political writing is going to flood out of me no matter what, I might as well lean into it.

Fitness-wise, my goal is to do five Daily Burn workouts a week, and I got all my workouts in, despite the cold. I’m particularly proud of that, this week it was very difficult, but I modified as necessary and didn’t push too hard. I think that’s a good life lesson, as forward motion is forward motion.

And that’s me. How was your January?

#FridayThoughts: Hello Future

Standard

If you’re a regular reader (and of course you’re a regular reader and if you’re not a regular reader, hello and welcome!) you may be looking for #AccountaClub since it’s Friday and that’s usually what happens on Friday.

Well, that’s sooooooo 2019.

In 2020, we’ll do #AccountaClub on the last Friday of the month. Plenty of time for plenty of updates. Whatever your goals, whatever you’re working on, we’ll talk about it here!

This being my first real post of 2020, I’ve just got to comment on how far in the future the year sounds. All the things we thought we’d have this far in the future; what happened?!

As I said on Twitter, we should have potato chips that each count as 30 sit ups by now. I stand by it.

The news is pretty much all bad, and yet I feel oddly optimistic. I’m sure the universe will ironic me out of that in no time flat, but for right now, I can’t help but feel our near future will be better than the present.

I shouldn’t taunt the universe that way.

Anyhow, I wish you peace, prosperity and joy in your new year, and a fantastic Friday.

#FridayThoughts about #AccountaClub Friday

Standard

I’m thinking I’m going to scale back on #AccountaClub next year. Perhaps make it once a month; perhaps cut it entirely.

Though I’m leaning toward once a month.

You may or may not have noticed, but my blog posts have taken on a certain rhythm this year, and I like it. Most mornings, when I sit to write, there’s the post, ready to go, in my brain.

Except for #AccountaClub.

I’d like a little more flexibility on Friday. And we can still talk about our weeks, because why not?

But writing is always evolution, and for now, the weekly posts feel stagnant to me. Presto chango, I can fix that.

Like magic.

We’ll see. Luckily blogs are not written in stone. They’re written in mystical electrons that are somehow visible to the human eye or something like that.

I’m pretty sure I’m close.

Either way, have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

#AccountaClub Friday, December 13, 2019

Standard

Huh. Didn’t realize it was Friday the 13th until I typed the headline. No wonder there’s a Christmas Friday the 13th movie coming out. I thought that was an odd combo.

It all makes sense now.

But on to #AccountaClub! There was some editing, and there was a lot of other stuff, including taking care of some things that had been hanging over my head. So if you missed Wednesday’s post, and you have one of those, do the thing!

I did the thing. It felt great.

I also saw the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Art Institute, and it was amazing.

And on other fronts, I’ve been teaching myself to crochet through the plethora of Youtube videos, and I made two scarves! A regular one and an infinity scarf. I’m working on number three, it’s a great way to get the brain going.

Fitness was also good this week, five days, five workouts.

That’s me! How was your week?

#AccountaClub Friday, December 6, 2019

Standard

My brain wanted to type 2017, but my fingers knew better. Here we are at the very very back edge of 2019.

On the cusp of 2020, a year that once sounded so far in the future it was probably going to happen in the far reaches of space. I wonder if they felt that way about 1920.

Anyway, it’s AccountaClub time, when we talk about how our weeks and our projects are going.

Editing went, not in a stellar way, but I made progress. Fitness was five days, five workouts, and they were pretty good. Today was yoga, which is always, always a favorite.

And that was my week. How was yours?

#AccountaClub? Thanksgiving week? Who are we kidding?!

Standard

Though the fitness was great this week, of course there’s been no writing or editing worth mentioning, so why not focus on the writing past? That is complete? And conveniently housed in book form?

BUT WAIT! THERE ARE STILL MORE! Here they are.
